The 1908 Pattern Cavalry Trooper's Sword was the last service sword issued to the cavalry of the British Army. It is widely considered the most effective cavalry sword ever designed, although ironically its introduction occurred as swords finally became obsolete as military weapons. The 1912 Pattern British Cavalry Sword was introduced for officers, who had previously carried privately purchased non-regulation swords. The 1912 Pattern Sword was essentially the same as the 1908 Pattern but featured more decoration. The bowl shaped guard features an engraved floral pattern that was designed to mimic the honeysuckle pattern that was seen on officer’s swords in the 19thcentury. This sword has a blunt forged steel blade which has not been tempered so we would only recommend it for display only. Features a steel guard, leather wrapped grip and polished steel scabbard.
